‘Determination Key to NPFL Win’


Wikki Tourists attacking midfielder Harrison Madu says sheer determination helped his side to convincingly beat Warri Wolves.

The Bauchi outfit defeated the Seasiders 4-0 in Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) rescheduled matchday 6 clash at ATBS in Bauchi.

Godwin Obaje and Harrison Madu each scored for the side while Idris Mohammed’s brace completed the rout of the Warri-based side.

Madu said the anger over the barren draw against Akwa United was the tonic that saw his side go goal crazy against the visitors.

“Determination and hard work combined to greatly help us to overpower Warri Wolves.

“After the goalless draw at the weekend against Akwa United we vowed to beat our next opponents.

“I’m happy we were able to achieve our goal and win the three points at stake and with a wide goal margin to boot.

“You can be rest assured that today’s (Wednesday) victory will not be a one off result but a performance we will replicate in our next matches.

“Our season’s goal is to earn a ticket to the continent at the end of the ongoing league season.

“Wolves are not a bad side but I think they met a side determined to claim the points at stake.

“Of course, we played far better than the opponents and deserved to win all the points,” said Madu to supersport.com.

The victory against Warri Wolves has taken Wikki Tourists’ total earnings to 15 from a possible 27 in the nine-week-old top flight.
